Columbia River Holds Off Fort Vancouver In 14-12 Win

Written by Bryan Levesque on October 16, 2010

Columbia River keeps their hopes of a post season berth alive with their 14-12 home win over Fort Vancouver.

Chieftain RB Remick Kawawaki was again the go-to-guy for Columbia River. Kawawaki had 138 yards rushing on 24 carries and both Chieftain touchdowns.

Fort Vancouver hung around the entire night, and scored with 8 seconds to play. However, due to a blocked extra point in the 2nd quarter, Fort had to go for 2, and they were not able to convert and took the loss.

With the win Columbia River  improves to 5-2 on the season and 3-2 in league play. The Chieftains will travel to Skyview (5-2 3-0) Friday at Kiggins Bowl 8:00 p.m. Fort Vancouver falls to 2-5 on the season with the loss and 0-4 in league play. The Trappers will travel to Kelso (5-2 3-1) Friday at Schroeder Field 7:00 p.m.

    i thought CR was a better team than this? 2point win over fort?

    River is a young team, but so is Fort. Fort played great defense in this game. Fort has lost three games by 8 points or less. Turn those around and Fort is 5-2 instead of 2-5. So don’t think anything bad about Fort based on past years. They are better this year, but make some bad mistakes at times due to some inexperience.

    River is too one demensional. If it wasn’t for Kawawaki and the defense, there would be no offense. Wait til they see the likes of Skyview and M.V., then it is gonna get really ugly to watch.

    trapper fan. fort may be young, but you cant say they could be 5-2….thats a miracle. teams like MV put them in there place. its just that simple. if union played them. same idea

    Union fan you obviously haven’t paid attention to their games. Yes, Mt. View took it to them. But others they have played have been close. They lost by 1 pt. when they went for 2 and missed at the end of the game, they lost at Kelso as the ball glanced off the receiver’s hands in the end zone at the end down by 8, and they lost last week when they failed on a 2 pt. conversion to tie it up with 5 seconds left. Turn those three games around and they are 5-2 instead of 2-5. That is not a miracle, that is a fact. They are not in Union’s, Camas’, Skyview or Mt. View’s class, but they are able to compete with the others. The Prairie game was 14-7 at halftime but they fell apart in the second half. Still, competing with teams is a lot better than the past decade or two! They are on the right track and some good, young athletes are coming up.

    once prairie’s offense got on track against fort it was all over. i will admit as a player, ive played against fort for 3 years now. and this year they are by far better then they have been in the past. like it was mentioned earlier, they just make a few key mistakes.

    Historically River and Skyview is a close game. But I think River is going to loose big to Skyview (by three or four TD’s) and Mountain View will beat them by three touchdowns. I have watched them in person and have not been impressed. (RB is pretty good) They do have great coaches but I think they are in for a rough end of the season and a fourth place finish behind Camas, MV, Kelso (who needs to beat Prairie)

Got something to say?
